Just like the comments from his fans suggest, the moves that Hrithik Roshan performed in this song were like ones never seen before.

7) Baaware Baaware Baaware from Luck by Chance
As we have started by saying, he is one of the best dancers in Bollywood and arguably the best dancer the world has ever seen with some of his fans going to the “blasphemic” extent of saying he is better than Michael Jackson! This song right here said to be the living example and evidence of this.
In this song, Hrithik has killer moves and probably for the first time he proved that he does not need outside support to prove his breath-taking dance moves. To believe that he is really a great dancer, you also need to check out the song which is in perfect synchronization with the choreography.
The Luck by Chance is a 2009 Indian drama film directed by Zoya Akhtar and Hrithik takes a surprising supporting role. The film is about the journey of an actor who arrives in Mumbai with the dream of becoming a movie star. The story is formed by his struggles on becoming a star while at the same time struggling to maintain his relationships. It was supported by positive reviews from critics and was just an average box office film. Perhaps it was because Hrithik was not in the leading role which got many fans disappointed. You never know but still, the dance moves are worth checking out.
6) Main Aisa Kyun Hoon from Lakshya
In English, Lakshya means ‘Aim’ and it is a 2004 Indian war drama film directed by Farhan Akhtar and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani. Hrithik Roshan along with Preity Zinta once again takes the lead roles.
Another composition makes the cut on this list thanks to his outstanding out-of-the-world dance moves. This is a laid-back hip-hop dance number which was choreographed by Prabhu Deva. Here, once again, he proves to be one of the best and perhaps, The Best?
The choreographer gave him some quite complex dance moves but given the fact that his reputation precedes him, he did not disappoint. He took the challenge and proved himself. He did justice to the moves.
Make sure you watch the song and even though it has not been scientifically proven, yet, you might go crazy. The song was composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy and sung by Shaan. The film, on the other hand, is about a Lieutenant who develops from an aimless young man into an army officer with a backdrop of a fictionalized 1999 Kargil War.
The film did not fair well as expected but still managed to reach the cult status among an audience which says Hrithik’s performance was the best, to date.
5) Bumbro Bumbro from Mission Kashmir
Mission Kashmir is a 2000 Indian action drama film directed and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chora which featured Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta in the main roles.
The two cast leaders remade a folk song from the problematic land of Kashmir in this film. Roshan performed this song with the cute dimple lady which had traditional Indian beats and a Kashmir touch. The song’s light touch can lighten up your day. They gave a performance of their lives and as people today say; they totally smashed it!
Different from his choreography in other movies is that the moves in this song are relatively simple but still cute. They both looked amazing. The song was composed by Ehsaan Noorani and sung by Shankar Mahadevan, Jaspinder Narua, and Sunidhi Chauhan.

The dancing in this film excites and dazzles the viewer and probably for the first time he gets to showcase his 6-pack abdominal muscles (abs).
